W5 Engine Rear Main Seal Block

Does anyone know of another source, other than from Mike Butters, for the replacement of the diecast block for the rear main engine seal for a W5 engine?

I've been trying to communicate with Mike Butters for over 6 months about whether he has something suitable. Initial response from Mike was that he would look what he had. To date I have not had a suitable answer. My latest emails to him just go unanswered.

Looking for 1 unit, possibly 2. Needed soon so I get this motor back together.

Thanks

Hi Shane.
I have not had any luck communicating with Butters either. Sent two emails inquiring about tail light lenses, but have not heard back at all.
Does anyone know why we are not getting responses from Butters?

Hi Guys:

I was just talking to Mike's mother on the phone. Mike has been very busy and acknowledges that he is much behind in letter, emails and such. She notes that he is on the job from 6:30 am to 6>00 pm most days and is having problems keeping up. I mentioned that he had inquiries from both Australia and USA that were awaiting answers to no avail. She will let it be known.

Hope this helps you and others.

Re: W5 Engine Rear Main Seal Block

Hi guys:

Was just talking to Mike Butters today. He has no record of those emails and feels that perhaps they came through as spam. He is on a small ISP and feels that maybe the parameters are too tight. He is going to talk to them on Monday.
Don't worry, we are trying to help you.

Re: W5 Engine Rear Main Seal Block

Hi.
Mike and his dad Neil are very responsible and fine people and long time members of our great club and I been buying new cast parts way back since my 29 Durant 6-66 supplying all the interior handles and all kinds of other parts and the a few rear main seal blocks, and they also have molds for other old cars like Pierce Arrow etc so stay extremely busy, but always have communicated with me fairly quickly. Great family and super high quality parts and top notch chrome too. Mikes ph is 905-372-6926 .
They are always published in our club roster.
